Some fascinating battles, and very do-able because the forces are relatively small. In fact mine were really small as I fought 1796 in 2mm:http://bloodybigbattles.blogspot.com/2018/04/lodid-dice.htmlChris Bloody Big BATTLES!https://groups.io/g/bloodybigbattles
Quote from: hammurabi70 on 07 January 2021, 09:11:51 PMInspirational stuff. How do you base and mark the units? Small units are difficult to differentiate.
Quote from: Chris Pringle on 10 February 2021, 07:32:30 PMSorry, hammurabi, missed this until now. Answer is:All my 2mm units are on 2" x 2" bases.The games are small enough (about a dozen units a side) that marking them isn't really necessary. All the bases are numbered, though, so I sometimes mark them on a roster so I can check which brigade belongs to which general if I really need to. There are other things that can be done to aid quick and easy visual ID, eg some units might be based as ordre mixte, others in columns, etc. Then you can say all the ordre mixte are 1 Corps, all the massed columns are 2 Corps, the ones in white uniforms are 3 Corps (etc).Chris
